Is Your Exercise Program Suffient to Keep You Independent to Age 90+?

Active aging, being physically active, exercising regularly and staying engaged in life are important in the maintaining our function, health, fitness and perfomance. But, face it, when we get older, the body is changing and the exercise program we have been doing may not be appropriate when to maxizing function and fitness is the goal.

Turning back the aging clock to your advantage

A lifetime of wear and tear, the effects of a sedentary lifestyle(too much sitting) and other poor lifestyle choices catches up when we reach midlife and accumulate in those later years with chronic health and medical problems, causing dis-function and pain, and eventually loss of independence or early death. Pretty bleak outlook, right?

AGING IN PLACE: LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS TO INDEPENDENCE AND FALL RISK REDUCTION

Early 2015 it was suggested to me by a Geriatric Care Manager(GCM) to prepare a proposal to speak at the Western Regional Geriatric Care Manager's Conference November 5-7, 2015 for the first time offered in Portland Oregon. The GCM mentioned that the targeted exercise training that I had provided for her father in law provided him with the opportunity to stay at home with the strength and mobility to live out his life at home longer rather than having to move to a care facility.

Age Is Just a Number!

As a trainer in my 60s, I find it refreshing that there are so many others in my age range, and older, that refuse to just to let themselves go. I love my job!  I have always enjoyed fitness, but I find it especially rewarding to help to inspire women, babyboomers & seniors to stay active.  As women get into their 50s, they sometimes start having balance issues. It may not be very apparent at the start, but it is a little more noticable to them as time goes on.
